MEMPHIS, Tenn. (WMC) - Construction is underway for a new warehouse facility in Raleigh.

A deed filed Tuesday with the Shelby County Register shows Amazon purchased the property for more than $3 million.

The 4 million-square-foot facility is near New Allen and Hawkins Mill Roads and will bring more than 1,000 jobs to the area.
